The second half was a defensive struggle. The goaltending of Zoe Gilad and the defense, led by Amanda Garcia and Jenna Neu kept the Cheetahs from scoring early in the second half.

Several shots on goal by Quijada, Schecter, and Becker were stopped by the Cheetahs Valerie Hoffer, who was fantastic in goal and kept her team in the game.

As the clock ticked down, the cheers from all the Blue Angels families and friends grew louder and louder.
